Responses to the Feb. 12 question, “Do you support President Obama’s call for small-business owners to voluntarily raise employees’ base wages?”
Focus on the military
I do not support President Obama telling small-business owners to raise their wages. He should instead focus on getting our troops out of Afghanistan.
It’s not the President’s job
I don’t think President Obama should tell small-business owners what to do. It’s not his job. He is responsible for upholding the Constitution and protecting us from overseas enemies.

Don’t kill deer
Shame on the Department of Agriculture for feeling that they should kill off the deer. What happened to this state’s animal cruelty laws? It’s sick to want to kill innocent animals.

Thank you for quick response
I called Councilman Pinto’s office to tell them about a school crosswalk covered in snow and ice. It was cleaned up in 15 minutes. I wish all politicians responded this quickly.
Don’t park in the street during snow
Why can’t people move their cars and trucks off the street when snowstorms are expected? I’m tired of shoveling the extra snow in front of my driveway because plows can’t get around the parked cars.
Snow highlights poor roads
All of the snowstorms resulted in some horrible potholes and generally bad roads all over the place. It goes to show just how lax road improvement is on Long Island.
Do you support the Board of Regents’ decision to delay tougher high school exams until 2022?
